I was really enjoying the submarines division, was curious if the devs planned on bringing this feature back? i seemed to enjoy the submarine mode more than the others.

 

I've searched the forums for someone asking a similar question with no previal.

 

Sorry in advanced.

that was a test done on the main server to get more people to try and so more data. their probably going to bring it back but with some changes.

They lost them in the patch.

Like Narai!

Maybe their data showed subs/anti-sub still needs a lot of tweaking and balancing. Maybe the data showed the majority of players did not like playing against subs. Lots of subs in the queue, mostly bots in the other ships even though there were added rewards for playing non-subs. Time will tell.

Subs will be in randoms then CB. It's inevitable. Just accept it.

I can't wait. Subs are my favorite class. 150k damage at T6, yes please.

Submarines were great fun!

Its the only class of ships in the game that isn't burdened by the
stupidity of the 21st century integrated battlespace nightmare.

Truthfully, the game is getting to be a wash-rinse-repeat affair.
Submarines added a new dimension to the game—literally—
that I found invigorating and added life to the game.

The only suggestion that I would add to the class to make it
more interesting would be to allow a submariner to exceeed
the 80 meter depth limit.  You could use the RNG to determine
when a sub had exceeded its crush depth.  That would add
a fun dose of uncertainty to subs who are attempting to
evade enemy attack and probably generate a lot of kills
for attacking DDs and CLs.

Awaiting subs is the only reason the game is still on my PC. 
I hope they arrive soon.

Subs were obviously less ready for release than WG realized, and seem to have been pulled back into development for more balance and refinements. I have to be honest, personally I found them to be truly awful in just about every way.

Pretty much this. I think they found even more issues than many of us predicted given the complete radio silence from WG since the test ended nearly 3 months ago.

I get the impression from the (lack of) maps we were given that converting maps to have underwater geometry is much more work than they thought. 

That is a much bigger issue than something like "shark attack" which could be fixed by changing a number.

Only reason I even bothered with that mode was how heavily WG incentivized playing a surface ship.  With the 200% bonus and some flags, I finished the grind through the Devonshire in a handful of games.  

As far as issues, there were multiple threads on here about things that were wrong with subs from a counterplay perspective.  And playing a surface ship in that mode, I found it entirely boring.  Especially after most people unlocked subs and the games were full of bots on the surface.  And games that ended up with only subs left alive were snore-fests.

I'm sure you're enjoying your CVs in the meantime.

They haven't figured out how to make soviet ships not be as vulnerable vs subs like other nations will be. That's all there is to it. Bias coding takes time.
